Children’s Peace workshop

How to teach children to be peaceful inside. It’s not enough to teach them to just “breath and let it go”. You may encourage them to breathe with some therapeutic movements to create harmony between their physicality and their mind. Through this workshop they learn how to do an individual check-up of their own emotions like a real doctor. Drawing, coloring, listening to music and making music, are all good tools to bring peace inside.
